International Credit Mobility (ICM)


Over the last 30 years, the European Commission has funded the Erasmus programme, which has enabled more than 3 million European students to benefit from an international experience by performing part of their studies in another higher education institution (HEI) in different European countries. The Erasmus + programme now opens this opportunity to HEIs from other parts of the world. Under the International Credit Mobility (ICM), an HEI in a partner country can send its students on a study mobility to a partner HEI in a Program Country and vice versa.

As part of the institutional application for Key Action 1 of the Erasmus + Programme in 2017, the University of Minho has obtained funding for student mobility within the International Credit Mobility (ICM) from/to 27 partner countries outside Europe - Albania, Algeria, Armenia, Belarus , Cambodia, Chile, Colombia, South Korea, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Laos, Lebanon, Macau, Malaysia, Morocco, Mexico, Mongolia, Mozambique, Palestine, Russia, Serbia, Syria, Tunisia, Ukraine, United States of America and Vietnam.

UMOVE(ME) is a fantastic project that will allow you to live an unforgettable experience almost anywhere in the world.
